Dymax recently added the RotoSpense 360 Workstation, a new adhesive application system, to its line of dispensing equipment. The RotoSpense 360 enables one-handed dispensing of annular adhesive rings to the tip of cylindrical substrates, which frees up the operator.

The workstation also improves the bonding process of plastic tubing and connectors by allowing precise adhesive placement onto component ends repeatedly and accurately, with no need to rely on an adhesive’s viscosity to flow into place. The capability is critical where the exact amount of material is required to correctly fill tubing bond joints without causing overflow, gaps, or voids and reduces scrap from failed bonds and wasted adhesive.

Additional features include:

  • A fully integrated PLC/HMI for total user control of the system mechanics and part-count tracking.
  • Dispensing valves are controlled pneumatically and adjusted from the primary air-supply regulator.
  • A settings menu on the HMI offers the complete operation of the valve rotational speed, dispense time delay, and door open delay.
  • Material flow is adjusted by using the micrometer adjustment located on the top of the valve.
  • Suitability for a range of viscosities and tube sizes.
  • Touch-free operation allows for collaboration with cobots and automated feeding.

According to the company, integrating the system into benchtop manufacturing lines frees up operators’ hands, reduces operator variability, and increases reliability so users can more carefully manage parts and focus on accuracy.
